An evaluation of Sitewarehouse

We, at picturenamer.com, have selected 'Sitewarehouse' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we imagine that this brief review of 'Sitewarehouse' is probably going to be very useful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Sitewarehouse' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Sitewarehouse' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at picturenamer.com, have noted is the inexpensive prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts furnished by 'Sitewarehouse'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts delivered by 'Sitewarehouse' are powered by an in-house built, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a different host of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have immense predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting corporations cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared web hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the web site hosting price very low (since many users are hosted on the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered site hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, precluding a situation where you pay for a high-end web site hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small web hosting package that cannot host your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your website grows. Hence, you save money that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still new. Each site hosting plan furnished by 'Sitewarehouse' comes with an online site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Sitewarehouse' supplies shared web page hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, nearly the whole World is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable web hosting service at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'Sitewarehouse' are very well appointed and are available at a very affordable price (beginning from $6.25 for the BRONZE plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a VPS server may appear troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'Sitewarehouse' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal American server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to managing a typical shared web page hosting plan through a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server account is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When compared to a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not offer full root-level access (we, at picturenamer.com, think that this is a tiny weakness), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same web site hosting CP tool as the shared web site hosting accounts. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical environment is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to manage a VPS server, yet need more power and system resources than a VPS web server can supply them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Sitewarehouse' can be defined as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the SW Semi-dedicated L plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In picturenamer.com's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'Sitewarehouse' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'Sitewarehouse' offers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'Sitewarehouse', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from picturenamer.com, think that all dedicated server configurations delivered by 'Sitewarehouse' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server provides free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Sitewarehouse' are all unmanaged. We, at picturenamer.com, count this as a minor drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of website hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (picturenamer.com's) forecast is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP client useless. Our (picturenamer.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Sitewarehouse' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Sitewarehouse Server Silver package.
